I've been roaming off the strip around Las Vegas trying out different restaurants. Besides our typically go-to shabu shabu restaurant Swish, we ventured southeast in the Henderson area to try out a new place named Shabu Shabu Paradise.

It was an easy drive off the 15 freeway and is very close to Green Valley Ranch Resort and Casino.
The restaurant was located in a corporate business park with plenty of parking.

We started with a $1 edamame appetizer of the day. It was a good sized bowl of warm edamame sprinkled with sea salt:

Since it was about 100 degrees in Vegas I ordered a tall cold refreshing iced green tea:

Our shabu shabu dinner included a delicious mixed green salad was a terrific miso dressing:

We were served three dipping sauces. From left to right: a very spicy ponzu sauce, goma sauce, and regular ponzu:

My girlfriend and her mom order the regular sized beef shabu shabu, but I ordered the sukiyaki combo. Our waitress was excellent and service was great. She informed us that the salad, and veggies plate were unlimited and we could order as much as we wanted. It had chopped napa cabbage, green onions, snow peas, bamboo shoots, tofu carrots and tofu noodles (which were delicious!):

The shabu shabu pots were split so that you can share. I had the sukiyaki broth while my girlfriend had the regular shabu shabu:

My order included a combo of a large sized beef and a portion of sea scallops:

And for dessert, we had a bowl of complimentary vanilla ice cream with strawberry sauce and mixed fruit:

Ping's been suggesting to me about trying a shabu shabu place near us

August 24 2009, 8:03 PM 

We rarely rarely rarely ever eat at a shabu shabu place, so I'm wondering if she's reading all your shabu shabu write-ups here in this forum!

Cheers,
Anthony

shabu shabu places

August 26 2009, 5:57 PM 

Hi Anthony,
Looking forward to hearing about your shabu shabu experience. One of these days we've got to head back out to OC and try Anjin and that Japanese sushi/izakaya place across the street near Mitsuwa.

ED-209

All is not what it seems....

August 25 2009, 6:18 AM 

It seems like the Woos are always in Las Vegas or Hawaii.   They pretend to live in LA but that's not where they really are........  happy.gif

The Japanese writing on the menu does not say "paradise"....what is it?

O-shi-na-ya-mo?

At least it wasn't in Santa Monica LOL

August 25 2009, 5:41 PM 

Hi MTF,

Las Vegas is only a 3 and 1/2 hour drive .....

And Hawaii is only a 5 hour direct flight.... wait did someone say Hawaii? More on that coming up soon happy.gif

Not sure what the Japanese writing was but the English name on the menu and door is Shabu Shabu Paradise. I'll ask them when I go back there this weekend happy.gif

Sea scallops for shabu-shabu?

August 25 2009, 11:46 AM 

Hi ED-209,

Wow, it's interesting to see that Shabu Shabu Paradise has a combination plate of beef and GENEROUS portions of sea scallops. The other shabu shabu places I've been typically serve only 1 or 2 pieces of scallops in the seafood combination.

Vanilla ice cream topped with canned fruits looks yummy! Is it also all you can eat Vanilla ice cream, LOL.

Regards,
ATM

"King" sized portion of the menu

August 25 2009, 5:55 PM 

Hi ATM,
I was surprised too. I ordered the "King" combo #13 which is a one and a half order of beef and half order of scallops. It was a very generous portion and a good value for the price. I was so full that the next time I visit I'm going to just order the "Queen" sized combo.

The vanilla ice cream was yummy! Too bad it wasn't all you can eat happy.gif

Do you have any favorite places in Vegas?

Regards,
ED-209

Been wandering off the Strips...

August 27 2009, 9:49 AM 

Hi ED-209,

I've been wandering off the strips for dining location during the last "few" trips to Vegas. Two of the recent favorite places are Dae Jang Keum Korean BBQ and Yokohama Kaingenro (for their udon). For boba/jelly/fruits drinks, I like going to Tea Station. They also serve yummy pork chop rice and "Ca Ciang" noodles.

By the way, I wonder if Shabu Shabu Paradise also offer unlimited vegetables and complimentary ice cream at lunch time? Hmm... maybe I should visit soon to find out.

Regards,
ATM

Dae Jang Keum Korean BBQ in Las Vegas

August 27 2009, 10:30 AM 

Hi ATM,

I haven't tried Tea Station food yet, maybe someone will take me there soon.

Just make sure you don't get boba from that new place that has the $1 special. They actually charge you extra for the boba and I heard some people got tummy aches from trying it sad.gif

We did try out Dae Jang Keum Korean BBQ on Spring Mountain near Chinatown. It was pretty good - best of all it's open 24 hours and reasonably priced. For lunch we had the 'love' combo special that included brisket, galbi and pork, along with various side dishes, steamed egg, bean paste soup, and rice. The combo also includes a bottle of soju but since I don't really drink the waitress swapped it for iced tea.

A large plate of salad:

Sliced jalapeno peppers, whole raw garlic, and bean sauce:

Our dipping sauces. The one one right looked spicy but really wasn't. I mixed the two together and it was very tasty:

Hey MTF, the writing on the menu says ....

August 28 2009, 1:33 PM 

Hi MTF,
I'm having lunch right now at Shabu Shabu Paradise. I asked the waitress and she said that the writing translates to "menu" :p

Ed

hmm....

August 29 2009, 8:03 AM 

Thanks.

"O-" is an honorific in front of nouns.

"shina-mono" means articles or goods, so O-shina-mono could be "The goods".

I am stumped about "O-shina-ya-mo".

But it doesn't matter if you are in paradise.......

Hi Salman,

Thanks! We've got to set up a PuristS Las Vegas GTG sometime next year and time it so we can all join in on all the cool parties... like the one we went to this weekend happy.gif

VIP pool party at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. It was extremely hot during the day (over 108 degrees during the day!) but cooled down a little bit in the evening (pics taken with my iPhone):
